Help needed to restore corn planter

Letters to the Editor

| March 2010

This wooden corn planter has wooden drums for wheels that measure 8 by 28 inches. There is a lot of evidence of red paint with yellow, gold or orange pinstripes. It is set at a 42-inch row width. The planter boxes have wooden lids. The seed is dropped manually by a person sitting up front. The seed plates measure 4 inches by 13 inches. They have holes for different sizes of seeds. They slide in the box and have a “V” stamped on them. Other parts are stamped with “DD” or “EE.” I am looking for information and pictures to guide me in restoring it.
